It seems to be from one of "Choose Your Own Adventure" books, however I have failed to find which one exactly.

But then there's literally no difference between "free will" and "predetermined fate" and those two terms lose their overall meaning

Freewill and predestination can very well go hand in hand, however. We may choose our future, but it may also be preknown even before we do it. Just because someone knows what we're about to do, it doesn't mean that we aren't making the choice.

But doesn't everything affect those decisions? Your environment and past, the air pressure at the time, and such? Everything can be calculated.

I actually heard that we have some degree of free will. Michio Kaku holds that the quantum randomness (whatever the randomness is which I'm not even sure of) in our brains give us free will, I personally think that was the most embarrassing proposition he made on par with the video where he talked about aspergers as if it was a new and original thing.

Then there's Sam Harris, who wrote a book entitled "Free Will" where he argues rather well that it's an illusion.

Which brings me to my third point.... Daniel Dennett, who is a compatabalist, believes that free will is possible under certain circumstances if I'm right.

I myself believe that there is determinism in that you need to fullfill your physiological needs. But. If you are a rational person, you can make decisions in which you are in manysituations in life. For eexample, "which woman would be the best mate for me?" or "should I down a cup of tea or take a cough drop?" So I guess I am a compatabalist. Not only that, but the fact that you can always decide to stop making a decision when you're halfway to making it (e.g. reaching for the butter, then thinking about that you don't want to clog up your arteries)

Hope this helps. Either way, it doesn't matter much to me at all considering I am a splendid, complex and intricate being without and with free will. So, it doesnr bother me really. You may feel a few existential thoughts chip away at your sanity, which I did for a while thanks to this, but promise me. You will get over it. I have panic attacks in the evenings very many times, but it's like they're over in the morning afterwards

I love "option" books, can anyone give the official name for those types of literature, and some good reads of that genre as well?
